There's nothing wrong with your head shape or anything you should be embarrassed about honestly.

General Discussion / Re: What about changing clothes?

I like good dress and cool style. And often try something new. For example now i wear pinroll jeans. With these jeans, you can pull anything from a smart casual look to a laid back one as you only need to figure out the right combination of shoes and t-shirts or dress shirts. So they are universal. Just have look to examples:

Miscellaneous / Re: Laser hair removal on your scalp

Quick update.  For those who have really dark, thick hair that isn't as responsive to the Alex laser, switch to the YAG.

I had my first 4 treatments with the Alex.  The first treatment nearly eliminated all of the hair on the top.  Second and third each responded a little less effectively, but still gave me some additional recession on the sides and the bottom of the back.  Fourth treatment didn't seem to do much at all.

After reading up a little more on this thread, I convinced my tech to switch me to the YAG for treatment 5.  about 7 or 8 days after my YAG treatment, I noticed that what was left on the sides and back seemed to be growing in slower.  I usually shave every two days (for comfort reasons) and I needed to wait 3 or 4 days instead.  About 14 days after my YAG treatment, I noticed the back had become very patchy, with large portions finally responding.  Not completely eliminated like the first few treatments with the Alex, but significantly reduced thickness and growth rate.

I just had my touch up for treatment 5, so I'll check back in a couple of weeks and let everyone know whether the patchiness is reduced further.

Big thanks to @Wound and @Sasha1 for their recommendations there.

Yeah I like it, but if I was able to grow a full head of hair I doubt I would have ever shaved it. So I'm accepting the way things have panned out

👆 what he said. I do like the shaved head but if I had the choice of a full head of hair or sly...? I'd go with hair.

Thank you guys so much for your honest feedback!
I truly agree with you all in that being happy with yourself and the way you look is much more important than the opinions of others. I will definitely carry out the 30-day period to the end and see what I do afterwards!

What a difference!  Your skin must be thanking you!

You look very good and very normal shaved.  Nothing to be concerned about in that department.  I doubt your ex's leaving had much of anything to do with you, let alone how you look compared to the other guy.
